nVidia nforce network controller, (device do not start (code 10))

Hey, i have a compaq presario V3000 (mine is a V3015nr), When i bought it, it had windows xp and the ethernet and wireless connection worked well, then, i decided to upgrade it to win 7, but then, the drivers just crashed, i fixed this and everything was working well, but then, this error appeared and since that i'm unable to use wireless connection...

I've serached a lot of drivers but all of them are for Windows xp, or windows 7 x64...

Mine is an Windows 7 ultimate x32

Please help me finding out the solution, or a least some drivers...
Thanks if you're decided to help me...

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

So let me get this straight:

  • You had XP and upgraded to Windows 7, (which is what, home premium?)
  • Upon upgrade several of your device drivers malfunctioned?
  1. Which drivers failed, and how did you fix them? Re-installation of the operating system itself, or, of drivers individually (if you installed individually - then which?)
  • You say after fixing the drive errors another error appeared. What error?

I'm sorry, I need more information to help you out

If I'm misunderstanding, and your drivers are still going haywire, please list the names of the drivers and if possible the device AND the hardware driver name/model

Windows 7 ultimate x32

Ok, first, i upgraded to win 7 ultimate x32
second the drivers which failed were:
-Vga driver (nVidia GeForce Go 6150)
-Sound card driver (Conexant High Definition Audio)
-Network card driver (nVidia nForce Network Controller)

Then, i found in the local disk a folder with all of the drivers, i installed them and everything appeared to be working...
But yesterday, the network card one stopped working, the device was unable to start so i reinstalled things and it worked again..
Now, it stopped working, i reinstalled it again, and it worked by 3 - 4 hours, then i restarted the laptop and the problem appeared again...

That's all i know, if you need more info. just ask me
Thank you for your help
